From the Yarmouth Police Department (verbatim):



On Saturday May 18, 2019 at 4PM, Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Officers responded to a home in West Yarmouth for a report of a juvenile that was reporting he was almost kidnapped at the Dollar General Store located nearby. 

Patrol Officers met reporting parties who stated that a juvenile showed up at their door out of breath saying that a man had just tried to kidnap him in the parking lot of the Dollar General. 

Patrol Officers met with the juvenile and determined he was not injured and did not require medical care.

The initial investigation indicates that after buying an item in the store, the juvenile exited the store and noticed an older male waiting by the exit. 

As he walked by the male, the male stated to him that he had candy for him in his van. 

The man then extended his arm to try and guide the juvenile to his parked van which was nearby with its sliding door open.

Patrol Officers went to the Dollar General and reviewed the surveillance video which showed a man fitting the description inside the store.

Yarmouth Police Department Detectives took over the investigation, with technical support from the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Department Crime Scene Unit.

The Yarmouth Police Department is asking for the public to help and is releasing these images of the man involved.

• Male
• Age 40 to 50
• Shaved head
• Close beard that was dark with spots of silver or white
• White shirt 
• Green shorts
• Tan min-van


Please call the Yarmouth Police Department immediately 508.775.0445 extension 0 or extension 2134 if you know have any helpful information or know who this man is.
